Students enrolled in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine may elect to earn the Master’s Degree in Bioethics in conjunction with their medical degree. This allows the MA degree to be earned in an accelerated program, taking a year away from the MD program, usually between the second and third years of medical school. During this year, the student will follow the University calendar for the fall and spring terms. The calendar is available at the Office of the University Registrar’s Web site. For additional information about the MD/MA degree consult the program’s Web site.
